Whiz Quiz is the “GE College Bowl” styled academic competition that has been a tradition in the FWISD since the 1977-78 school year. This “sport of knowledge” requires 6th grade, 7th & 8th grade and high school academic teams to accurately answer brain stretching questions faster than their opponents.
Here's a closer look at the final results:
Semi-Final Area 1
Paschal High School 625
Polytechnic High School 65
Semi-Final Area 2
Western Hills High School 245
Arlington Heights High School 165

In the 7th/8th grade contest on February 2, McLean Middle School defeated the team from Daggett Montessori. In 6th grade action on January 30, McLean 6th Grade also took home the championship trophy after a win over Daggett Montessori.
Whiz Quiz teams study and train for months, and must defeat several other teams just to make it to the finals. Congratulations to all students on a wonderful season!
